    I tried a DX2 for a week and while I love moto I found battery life to be only a littlee better and at the end of the day I find the DC is decent battery, but certain aps just suck battery. I find that if I run Pinger's TextFree app the phones drains so fast even USB attached to computer it can't feed it enough power and will still drop a few percent over time. I find the DC far better than the X2, that said I am eagerly awaiting the Bionic becasue if that thing has better battery, dual cores and rocket 4G then I may jump to Moto.

    im hearing the bionic is too far out for me to wait for that. have to cancel with sprint before the 8th and they are saying to bionic until september. plus the bionic will probably be 300 bucks where the charge is only going to cost me 100

    Go with the Charge then, 4G is awesome and the Charge performs really nicely, my guess is if you are looking to game on the DC then maybe it will be a dog, but I stream video, web, text, e-mail and the phone is plenty fast.

    I've found that Plants vs Zombies is a real test for the Charge's video processor. I experience more heat and stuttering with this game than others. When the lawn is filled with zombies, and all your plants are firing away, I can definitely see the limitations of the 512 ram. It's playable, to be sure, but not as smooth as it could be.
